Searching for an International Internship?
Important Notice: The CSB/SJU Internship Office supports students in setting up academic credit for international internships on the condition that the site, housing and travel arrangements are discussed in advance with the CSB/SJU Internship Coordinator. See Registering for an International Internship for requirements and steps.
Students participating in an internship/field experience (Course #398) while on a CSB/SJU sponsored study abroad program will register through Banner and do not need to follow the registration process linked in the previous paragraph. Check with your academic department to determine whether a course #398 internship experience will count toward your major requirements. Please contact the internship office at X.5799 if you have questions.
Students planning international internships are required to read the US State Department travel warning (if any) for their host country http://travel.state.gov/travel and the Before You Go and Health and Safety sections on the Office for Education Abroad website.
Visit the GLOBAL AND INTERCULTURAL INTERNSHIPS link on the Internship website for listings of international internships and Going Global for country-specific information on travel, VISA requirements, and culture in 24 countries.
